Relaxed Fall Styles

September fashion is a bridge from the light weight and loose clothes of summer to the structured heavy weights of fall and I for one am having a hard time coping with the fact that it is indeed September and summer is ending. To help me{and you!} feel better about the situation, I have found some truly beautiful pieces that are a little bit summer and a little bit fall. Which makes them perfect for right now!

Solna Sleeveless Top by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.

First is this lovely feminine Solna Sleeveless Top by Velvet by Graham and Spencer. I am loving the neckline, the super soft and drapey material and this perfect for all gray/purple color. The detail really draws the eyes up to your face, and highlights the collarbone.

Lastly, I love the water color pattern{so right now!} and slit sleeve detail on the Cold Shoulder Top by Sweet Pea. These are perfect early fall colors and the flattering loose cut is great with leggings, shorts, or jeans. Go out and enjoy what last few moments of summer you can, but don’t forget to arm yourself with fall fashion from Vintage Fringe !

Five Fabulous Fall Essentials

Velvet Nanelle Scoop Neck

This week we’re focused on fashion essentials for fall.  The first key to fall fashion this year and every year for that matter is layering.  The key to any layered look in fall starts for me with a  few great long sleeve tee shirts. Long sleeve tees not only keep you warm, but are the  essential first step to any layered look.  Add a vest, cardigan or sweater on top of it and you have a versatile and fashionable outfit.

This fall I have found two essential designer long sleeve tees that will get you through both fall and winter. The first long sleeve tee I love is the Nanelle long sleeve tee from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. It’s easy to see how versatile this shirt is, but what is hard to see is how amazingly soft and comfortable this baby jersey fabric feels.  I also love the colors it comes in. Pictured above in Rain, it also comes in a darker green, ivory, and a taupe color.

Splendid Long Sleeve Scoop Neck Tee

Another great choice for best long sleeve shirt for fall is by Splendid. This tee is also super soft, durable, and washable. The length on this shirt is perfect, and the colors available are black, white, brown, and green.  I wear this shirt under many of my other splendid tees to add warmth and style to many tops.  The fabric on this top is a lightweight, super soft cotton that feels truly amazing on.  It is a sheerer fabric than the Nanelle scoop neck because the fabric is a lighter cotton than the Nanelle.  I love layering this top under cardigans or blazers.

Stay tuned for my 4 other fabulous fall essentials…. and as always visit www.VintageFringe.com for these and many more fashion must haves.

Trend Alert: The Little Black and White Dress

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart Black and White Dress

In this Fashion Trend Alert, we’ve noticed that celebrities everywhere have graced red carpets and late night clubs with a modern twist on the classic “little black dress”.  High contrast print dresses in black and white are popping up everywhere on everyone.  From Pamela Anderson to Blake Lively or Kristen Stewart the black and white dress is definitely a must have this season.  What we at Vintage Fringe love about the black and white combo is it’s extreme versatility and classic style.  Glam up your look with colorful jewelry or shoes (red or yellow would be adorable) to make it your own unique style.  Here at Vintage Fringe we love the Chapel Dress by Velvet.

The sleeves are just long enough that this dress can easily be worn in summer with heels or in the fall with your favorite black boots. We also love how the V-neck gives you a perfect neckline to add a chunky or dangly necklace.

In short, I could wear this dress in so many ways with so many shoes and bags I already have, and the look is so classic I will be wearing this dress for many seasons to come! Check it out today at Vintage Fringe.

Velvet Clothing Inaugural Style

It’s no secret that we love Velvet Clothing and think their brand is right at the top of the list in terms of creating feminine style tops that are fashionable and comfortable all in one.  In light of the the recent Inauguration and as a tribute to a fashion color trend that Michelle Obama made popular with her Inaugural outfit we want to highlight a top by Velvet Clothing that we currently carry in the Lemongrass color.

Velvet Clothing Coley Turtleneck in Lemongrass

Velvet’s Coley turtleneck top is perfect for this time of year as it is still too chilly to wear basic short sleeve tops, but the elbow length sleeve gives enough coverage to keep you temperate if you wear this under a blazer or jacket and yet if you have to take that top layer off, it still keeps much of your arm covered.  It is a turtleneck, but not a tight one; it features a raw edge at the top, so it is looser than most turtlenecks and should just lay naturally.

This Velvet by Graham and Spencer top is perfect for the in-between seasons when it isn’t warm enough to wear short sleeves and tanks alone, but yet not cold enough to warrant a heavy sweater.  Part of Velvet’s Gauzy Whisper collection this season, this light weight top is available at Vintage Fringe in Lemongrass as shown here as well as Cherrywood (Red), Sprig (Light Brown), and Brimstone (Grey).  We love the lemongrass color because it is so sunny and unique.  In addition, it is great for contrasting under  black, grey and even navy.   The Coley turtleneck is machine washable and the jersey fabric is super soft and so comfortable to wear!

Velvet Brand Clothing Timeless Turtlenecks

Velvet Brand Clothing

We love Velvet Brand Clothing and this week we’re continuing our turtleneck series about the designers we carry with timeless turtlenecks.  We wanted to highlight one of our favorites from Velvet by Graham and Spencer.

Currently one of our new arrivals, we love the look of the Velvet Catelina top featuring a turtleneck with additional accent details.  The actual turtleneck is meant to be more akin to your traditional turtleneck with the foldover, but it isn’t tight or restrictive, it actually fits just right.  In addition, we love the “fringe” details with the pleats around the neckline giving it a feminine touch and some added style.  Part of Velvet Brand Clothing’s Baby Jersey collection, this machine washable baby jersey cotton feels so soft and is so comfortable to wear.  We also love the length as it has long sleeves and the top falls generally below the hips depending on your body type.  Currently available in Pink (Shown), Ivory (Soy), and Plum (Currant).
